7:00 am
7:00 we continue to track the latest storms moving across the bay area. the problems popping up in the bay area and explain where the hardest rain is falling now. . we're live at the scene of a big rig crash at 880 northbound in oakland. they're in the process of removing a big rig. when they will open all lanes of traffic, coming up. welcome back, it's a busy thursday, february 16th i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm dave clark. the big story this morning, the storm that is rolling and blowing through the bay area. >> we have team coverage for you.
7:01 am
allie rasmus is on the scene. first, steve, where is the heaviest rain? it's moved through us. another wet pattern going for about a week. this system barrelling through rapidly so the rainfall rate is about an inch for some. thankfully the heaviest rain is now out to the valley and heading up to the sierra. for us, we have light rain in the mix but the heaviest rain has gone through. still some up in the lake county and need to keep an eye on that. flood warning through sunday. a little bit of rain in the east bay. maybe 24 out to martinez but nothing too heavy in there. altamont pass, there's a little but nothing compared to what we had. back towards redwood city and stanford. san jose, not that much anymore. 50s on the temps. the wind is a big story. tomorrow it will really crank up.
7:02 am
it's tailed off a bit compared to where it was. the system blasted through so it's out of the picture. we'll still have a mix of sun and clouds and light rain. this is the system tomorrow, the biggest they have seen in seven years in southern california. a wind producer for us and wind out of that and a break on the weekend until the next system on monday which looks like heavy rain for northern california and 60s on the temps. >> 880? >> that's right, the rain has been correlated with a big rig crash in oakland along northbound 880 and that's slowing traffic a lot this morning. let's go to allie rasmus on the side of the road and it was a dramatic -- something dramatic happened to the driver of the trucks? >> reporter: yes, he was ejected and #23e8 off the side of the ramp. -- -- fell off. at least he was able to communicate with paramedics when he was transported.
7:03 am
a look at 880, the far right lane is shut down to traffic as it has been since the crash happened at 4:30 this morning. a third tow truck we counted going by try to upright this big rig on its side. a short time ago chp closed the third lane on the right hand side to try and get people around the process. uprighting the big rig is a delicate operation. they have to do it in a way so the trailer doesn't split open or break and spill out its load on to the freeway. because then they would have to shut down more lanes of traffic. this story at 4:30 this morning. chp says the driver reported hitting a puddle and losing control of the vehicle on the rain and slick road. the driver hit another truck and he was ejected from the cab and fell off the highway down to the off ramp below. .
7:04 am
>> about 40-foot drop, medical aid was rendered and he was transported. >> did he explain what caused the crash? >> a little bit of weather related. he hit a puddle and a wet roadway and slid into the truck next to him which caused the crash. he ended up on the shoulder and tried to regain control of the truck which caused it to turn over. >> we don't have enough information on the driver's condition but chp says he was alert and communicating with paramedics as he was rushed to the hospital. 880 in the northbound direction is quite congested. chp says the back up is from here just over the off ramp where this crash happened and it's probably getting worse as we speak. the estimated tomb to reopen, the latest traffic to get it cleared out of the way, 8:00 so i work in progress out here. they haven't been able to totally upright the big rig. back to you guys.
7:05 am
>> i have a question. the driver of the truck that came out and ended up on the ramp below, was that the driver of the flipped over truck or another truck? >> yes, that was the driver of the truck that ended up on its side. >> thank you very much, allie rasmus. as you heard her say, the traffic is backing up. i'll show you how long it's backing up here on 880 northbound. we have the 880 coliseum shot here that normally doesn't get this way until 8:00 or so. this morning it's been this way since 6:45, jammed traffic all the way up to downtown oakland. i would recommend using 580 as an alternative route because of the slow traffic. look at this, you don't want to be in this. 580 is allowing big rigs for the time being until this accident has cleared up. let's move along and take a look at the other slow traffic here around the bay. northbound 17 of course ends up being a very slow commute here. if you're driving in the south
7:06 am
bay and want to know what that's like, 280 northbound and 85 and 101 are slow. a couple fender benders and cars that have spun out so to speak because of the wet weather. at 7:06 a quick look at the toll plaza. it's about a 25-minute delay. now let's go back to the desk. >> we will of course stay on top of traffic and weather throughout mornings on two. take us with you in the form of free ktvu weather app including a live radar look and extended forecast. we continue to follow breaking news in san jose where several police units have taken over in east san jose neighborhood. paul chambers is at the scene. police have been there for an hour and a half? >> reporter: yeah, almost about two hours ago, you can see here there's one armored vehicle out there and another up in the driveway. ten minutes ago we heard three
7:07 am
really loud bangs so we're not sure if those are flash bangs. we're told they're out here issuing a search warrant. we can look at video from earlier this morning. the officers were going in the home about 45 minutes ago. they were going in the home with the guns drawn. they're issuing a search warrant and there's a dog out here. officers say it's an interesting situation. normally with a search warrant there's not a heavy presence but that's all they're telling us now. we did see gang task force out here and also a chopper out here. i will tell you white road is closed between quinn by and norwood avenue. basically we thought things were over. it appeared things were settled but then we heard the three bangs right in a row. and then we saw a little bit of
7:08 am
activity and dogs come outside so there's a dog unit. we haven't seen any suspects or anyone being taken out of the house at this time. the other armored vehicle is up higher. they're called merge out here which is swat in other areas. looks like they're out here longer because they're roping off the area here. we're not sure what is going on but we'll stay on top of this and bring us you the latest. we're told officers are issuing a search warrant in san jose. back to you, gasia. i don't see traffic mind you. people who live in that neighborhood, are they able to leave their homes to go to work and school or is everyone being told to stay where they are? >> you can't go down white road between quinnby and norwood. we had people try to walk down the roadway but officers wouldn't allow them to go down for their own personal safety
7:09 am
which makes sense when you have a heavy police presence. >> right, it speaks to the severity of the situation. we'll stay on top of it and bring you back to mornings on two. still following a developing story in san francisco where a huge piece of construction equipment on top of a high-rise in the south market area is stabilize. work will start this morning to remove it. it's a concrete structure under construction at 33 to hey mus street. at one point it looked like it would fall off the buildings. nearby buildings were evacuated and surrounding streets were closed. people were allowed back in the area after there was no immediate danger of it falling anymore. wood and medal are being used to shore up the flat form under the pump. >> once the flat form is stabilize the pump has to be cut from its base and the crane sitting next to it will attach to the pump. >> the assistant fire chief
7:10 am
says the pump will be removed at some point this morning. hey mitch street will stayed closed. the real estate developer is responsible for several iconic sky scrapers around the world. it's a privately owned real estate company called heinz based in houston. renderings from the company's website shows what 33 tehayma will look like. the building is due to open sometime this year. some children want to be doctors or astronauts or firefighters but this little girl says her dream job is to work at google. this letter she wrote to the company and the response she got from the very top. good morning, it hasn't
7:11 am
been a great commute, especially for the early commuters. 880 is jam packed and wael tell you why this back up is not expected to get better before the morning commute is over -- -- we'll. the first of multiple fronts have gone through. that's the good news but there's snow up in the sierra and we're not done by a far cry for the next two days.
7:12 am
7:13 am
. flooding along 580 in richmond. it does appear one lane is directly impacted. car are going around it. we certainly see much worse
7:14 am
flooding in recent days where drivers take a big chance and drive through and the driver is stranded so the advice is turn around, don't drown. i can't imagine this would be that critical of a situation but it is repeating and the roads are slick. >> thanks gasia. wall street has seen it's best run in 25 yores. this is incredible. pam cook back in the studio -- -- years. >> it's been a record setting run. the index closed at new record highs five days in a row. that's new economic data affecting markets this morning. construction on new homes dipped 2.5% last month. that's affecting things a bit. checking in on the numbers, they are down this morning. not a lot though. very slight drop for the dow and snp 500 this morning. is snapchat worth $22 billion? the parent company is expected
7:15 am
to become a public company next month and it's giving a value estimated between 19 and 22 $22 billion. that's lower than original estimates. there are concerns about slowing user growth and greater competition from other social media. snap is supposed to be the biggest tech offering since ali baba in 2014. one little girl has high hopes for working for google. she sent a handwritten letter skk for a job with the company. she said she has good computer skills and likes the bean bag chairs. >> the ceo replied saying he looks forward to receiving her job application and encouraged the young girl to pursue her dreams. you can preorder the world's first flying car.
7:16 am
it's smeshlly approved -- -- commercially. it looks like a helicopter on three wheels. it takes ten minutes to trans form from car to helicopterer. the cost is between 400 thousand $400,000 and $600,000 and you have to put 10 $10,000 down. production is set to begin at the beginning of the year and deliveries in 2018. it goes 100 miles per hour. >> i want it, pam. >> i know you do. a lot of people. we should pool our money together. >> it's about the cost of a house, that's the problem. let's talk about traffic. so much to talk about in the commute. >> ask pam where she can find a $400,000 home in the bay area. >> she's laughing at that. >> good morning, let's take a look at the coliseum commute northbound 880 because of the truck accident. we have been talking about this since it happened at 4:30. northbound traffic backed up from the coliseum area up to
7:17 am
downtown oakland because one and two lanes are taken away as they try and right the truck and get it off the freeway. one person was injured and taken to the hospital in the wreck. 580 traffic is busier now. people are on 580 and you have heard about this and it's slow into lake shore area. i would still use 580. i wouldn't be on this freeway. this freeway is very slow driving up north to downtown oakland. let's talk about the nearby san mateo bridge. not too bad. it's moderate. you can see the weather is still a bit of a factor here in the morning commute. it's also going to be a factor for plain planes arriving today especially at sfo. sfo is the airport that is most affected by any sort of weather that is inclement. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza. you see traffic backed up to the mcarthur maze. south bay commute is slow. of course highway 17 remains very slow from scotts valley
7:18 am
over to the slide repair area. 7:18 let's bring steve in. >> have you seen anything on sfo? >> i'm about to get a specific time but i know just from doing this job for a long time that flight delays always happen. in fact, i'm o'clocking on the link here and it says one hour and three minutes what they expect at sfo today. -- -- clicking. it could change though. >> so i put you on the spot twice and you have responded. thank you sir. >> i have a computer. there's a winter weather advisory today and winter storm watch tomorrow. ski swim -- says snow has returned to truckee.
7:19 am
kent field over an inch. ben lomen right at an inch. santa rosa, san francisco .33. other totals, kelseyville coming in at 1.41. middle town, that's 1.02. three quarters and solsolito. sfo picked up a third of an inch of rain. our system went just flying through. left behind light rain. some good news, the lake continues to go down. so even though they're up to 117,000, the rate at which it's dropping did slow here in the last hour.
7:20 am
it's at 869.30. you can watch the system on the back side of that. we'll probably go to alex fast and he will tell you the rain has tapered off for now. lake county there's a flood warning out for clear lake at lake port until sunday. i don't think it's so much today and tomorrow. monday and tuesday we're concerned about. rain around walnut crook and it tails off. hayward and san leandro and after that, not a lot left. there's isolated rain moving through today especially with the system going by fast and a jet stream is picking up which will usher in unstable air. the breeze is a big story today and bigger story tomorrow. 23409 as robust as it was earlier. still a breezy day. the main bulk of the system is in the sierra. i-draw your attention to multiple systems here. this will be a big wind producer for us.
7:21 am
as we head into sunday and also sunday night into monday that will take in more our location. this is a whopper of a system for southern california. we'll also get rain out of that. they are expecting maybe the biggest storm to hit down there since december 2010. the weekend looks okay. by saturday morning we're on the drier side of the rain. monterey at four. 13 plus in the santa cruz mountains. 60s on your temps. tomorrow looks like a very windy day. we'll get some rain as well. then a break, probably about saturday afternoon into sunday evening and heavy rain monday. >> i woke up before the alarm and i just listened to the heavy rain and for the first time in a long time, it wasn't
7:22 am
happiness but worry that was in my mind. for oroville and 35 and 37. so it's interesting how that we need to rain has turned what sounded so nice back in october is now like u ohh oh. dozen of bay area businesses are not opening today. the national day of action to show support for immigrants.
7:23 am
7:24 am
7:25 am
0 ofrjts there's a nationwide boycott being called a day without immigrants. many are staying home from work to protests trump's pollty is. -- -- policies. imgrapts are being urged not to go to work or buy anything in a store or online and not eat at restaurants and students are being urged not to go to class. some bay area restaurants including some owned by immigrants are closed today in solidarity with the protests. restaurants in oakland and saffron indian bistro tweeted they are participating in the day without immigrants. president trump complains about several leaks of classified information. leaked phone conversations between former national security advisor michael flynn and a russian ambassador led to flynn's forced resignation this
7:26 am
week. some republicans suggests the leaks are coming from supporters of president obama some still working for the government. the chairman of the house oversight committee wants the inspector general to investigate. a supervisor adds the word when she resited the pledge to highlight inequality across the u.s. the board of supervisors meeting starts with the pledge of allegiance which ends with the "ind divisible with libber and justice for all" and she aids in "some day" -- -- adds. she says it's more about inequality experienced by women and minorities across the country. next, we're talking live with the chp about the most dangerous conditions we see around the bay area. also, all eyes on the oroville dam now as the latest
7:27 am
storm rolls in across northern california. the concerns from residents on whether or not days of repairs are actually going to hold up. it's a wet commute and that means more collisions on the road and more slow traffic and 880 is the place to avoid. we'll tell you why, straight ahead. our system this morning went through fast. there were some areas that picked up an inch of rain. tomorrow could be a howling wind event. more on that, coming up. you've got to let it go.
7:28 am
i've had it forever. we'll sell it on letgo. hey, i'll take it. it's time to snap, post, chat and sell. it's time to letgo.
7:29 am
7:30 am
a busy thursday morning, february 16th i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning, i'm dave clark. our big story is the storm blowing through the area. outside the studio not raining but those as steve would call angry clouds outside our door. >> let's talk more about the full weather coverage we have this morning with aalexa lex savage in oroville. let's go to steve now with a look at where the heaviest rain is now. not much heavy rain left here. it's stopped up at lake oroville. 42-100ths there. rainbow weather again. i can't overemphasize.
7:31 am
i don't candy coat it. if it's not a storm, it's not a storm. this system went through and tomorrow could be a major wind event. there's signs right off the bay area of the barometer bottoming out tomorrow around 29.08. if that happens it's hang on baby because this system went through fast. we will get rain for the next system tomorrow. there's still some light rain around but not much. sun clouds and breezy and blustery at times and off and on light rain. not too much heavy rain out of this. there's still some in the mix. it's tomorrow i'm worried about. upper 50s and very mild with the southerly breeze. the system is moving into the sierra producing snow there. multiple systems are taking aim at us. look at that system to the west. that is a beast. i'm telling you right now, southern california is getting hammered. we will get rain out of this as well.
7:32 am
if it all comes in, believe me it's a neon sign flashing and it's ex-stream lyly windy tomorrow -- -- ex stream tomorrowtomorrow -- extremely. . >> shawn, good morning, i wanted to -- you're in your cruiser, yes? >> yes. >> i wanted to ask you, i just saw a tweet from someone that said 580 was a problem. is it still a problem? what's going on there? >> yeah, still a problem. we are the fast lane clezed. the flooding is behind us now. in front of us one of the vehicles went through the flood flooded roadway. the water got up and messed up his transmission. now we're stuck in the center divide.
7:33 am
this is the last vehicle stuck as a result of the flooding. caltrans is getting the drain cleared. right now we just have the fast lane closed. traffic is slow behind it. traffic is flowing fine now. >> northbound 880 the truck accident and we had one person injured. when we have weather like this, how much does the ordinary sligs number go up? on a regular morning you have 10 collisions? how much on a rainy morning? >> easily double that. so the problem is we have twice as many calls to service and twice as many collisions on a rain day. they are solo vehicle pin outs where one vehicle is involved. if that's the case it's more often than not because you were driving too fast in the rain. when you roll up on an accident scene shawn and you ask people hey, do you think you were driving too fast?
7:34 am
what's the answer they give you? >> they never say they were driving too fast. they always say they thought they were driving at a safe speed but obviously that's not the case if you spun out and hit a wall. >> you heard the man, please slow down and drive for the conditions. you can be cited if you're driving too fast. if you're driving unsafely a police officer can pel you over and say hey, you're driving too fast. let's take a look at some of these things we have. the truck accident shawn and i mentioned at 5th. a big rig on its side. traffic is backed up. if you're looking at your tv screen and a lot of people don't, come to it and look and say you know what, i'm not going to use 880. 580 is a much better choice. it's still slow but better than this. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza backed up to the maze.
7:35 am
the metering lights are on. highway 17 is better. not a lot but better today than it has been from scotts valley. people have grown weary of this commute. 7:35. let's go back to the desk. despite steady rain, work to patch up the damaged emergency spillway continues right now. alex savage has been following the dam emergency. here's in oroville with how the rain is expecting the dam and spillways. >> yeah, good morning, gasia. better news to report weather wise as steve eluded to here. this is a fast moving system and we saw really heavy rain up here at the oroville dam early this morning. as you can tell here, the rain has let up and the storm appears to have passed through. we see fast moving clouds here up above the dam.
7:36 am
i want to talk about the work that is still continuing. it continued even during the early morning hours when we saw a heavy downpour. crews continuing to shore up the emergency spillway while at the same time they are releasing water at a rapid raid here from the reservoir and it's all coming down this concrete pill way here. this is the main spillway and they're putting water out over 100,000 cubic feet per second. there was so much concern about water that was topping over the dirt spillway, the secondary spillway and it was eroding at an alarming rate. work has been going on to shore it up with rocks and large sandbags. i hear a helicopter in the distance coming in to continue doing the heavy lifting.
7:37 am
0 they're confident the run off from these storms won't be enough to cause danl. at the same time, people living blow this dam down river they are still worried about the upcoming storms and there was a mandatory evacuation order lifted a couple days ago and a lot of businesses now are reopening and customers beginning to return to stores but still around town you see sandbags lining doors and there's concern about the potential for flooding along the river and a lot of people are wondering if the dam can truly handle more rain. . >> they have dropped the lake a lot. they're still the question of whether what they're doing is going to work. they're saying this isn't as well but like i tell everybody, mother nature has her own way of doing things. . >> again, they are continuing to try and reduce the lake level as much as possible. it's come down more than 30 feet.
7:38 am
they're hope is to get it down by 50 feet, to about 850 feet. they say that's ideal to handle the run off from the series of storms moving through here. then they have to think long term about trying to handle the snow melt and the resulting run off once the weather starts to warm up here in the coming months. water officials say they're planning to at some point in the next couple of days dial back how much water is being released from the main spillway. bring you back out here, you're looking at the dump trucks coming from a staging area and picking up loads full of large rocks and driving along the roadway that goes right across the top of oroville dam. tlaifr driving to the left hand side and delivering the rocks to the emergency spillway area. then they're being covered with
7:39 am
cement to help fortify the spillway. they're continuing to do work on it and they feel confident no matter how much run off they get from the rainstorms and whatever run off they get in the coming months they feel confident that the water will probably not even come over that emergency spillway. but if it does they feel confident it will hold. >> what a change from where we were sunday evening with this situation. >> it really is. 180-degree turn absolutely. there was so much concern that there was an imminent collapse. that threat really has passed. as you can tell then what we have had since then has been a real sense of urgency trying to do this work around the clock to try and shore up the pill sway and make sure that everyone living down river from here is safe. >> i know we will be bringing  you back throughout mornings on 2. two.
7:40 am
take us with you on our free ktvu weather app. . our time is 7:40. police searching for two men who assaulted a woman near a downtown park either saturday night or early sunday morning. police released two photos of one of the suspects taken by surveillance camera at a nearby supermarket. both men clean shaven in their 40s. the suspect in the photos is wearing a super bowl 50 carolina panthers sweatshirt and carried a gray nike backpack. the woman met and spent time with the two men before being attacked near lee garner park.  if you have any information call novato police. california senator pamela harris will deliver her first speech on the floor of the united states senate today. she's expected to talk about immigrant communities and
7:41 am
contributions to society. she'll also talk about president trump's executive order targeting immigrants and refugees. her speech will begin at 1:15 this afternoon. there's a renewed push to extend alcohol service at bars across the state. good morning, we have slow traffic and 880 really has taken the spotlight unfortunately in a bad way. 880 is backed up from san leandro solid to the scene of a truck accident that's been with us for three hours plus. a mix of sun and clouds and rainbow weather later today. a big system is on tap for tomorrow.
7:42 am
7:43 am
7:44 am
you can see from storm tracker, the bulk of the heavy rain has moved through the bay area but wet roads linger as do delays at the airport. 0. >> there are eight delays at sfo. situations a little bit better at san jose and oakland, they're each reporting three delays but again this is just the beginning of the day. it's the beginning of the storm system so we'll stay on top of it for you and help you get where you need to go. new this morning, there could be a cost driving down the crookedest street in the world. san francisco is recommended to charge a toll on lombard street. the intent is reduce traffic at the popular tourist spot.
7:45 am
2 million people visit lombard every year. no word yet on how much the proposed toll would cost. san francisco would be the first city to impose a toll on a city street in california. it could happen as early as two years from now. visitors would have to make a reservation and pay a fee to drive on lombard. it's also suggested violators would pay a fine of $100. one of the top south bay restaurants has been hit with a $120,000 fine for swapping out what was supposed to be an expensive fish dinner for a least expensive cheaper version without telling customers. the restaurant is in morgan hill owned by a mitch lynn rated chef. many customers have raved about their petrale sole that cost
7:46 am
$31. they confirmed between october october 2014 and march of 2016 the restaurant was switching the sole for a less expensive tilapia. the restaurant is offering $30 gift certificates who ordered it during that time. state senator scott weiner of san francisco has introduced a bill that would allow bars in california to stay open until 4:00 a.m.. >> you're going to see more income earned by workers and more taxes collected by both local governments and the state and just more economic activity overall. . >> local governments have the option to extend alcohol serving hours in limited areas that are zoned for late night entertainment. a group opposing the measures says there are concerns about people leaving bars at 4:00 in the morning. >> and driving away into commuter traffic that starts in
7:47 am
many parts of california at 5:00 or 6:00 in the morning. >> if the bill passes it would not apply to liquor stores and any local government that wants to extend hours would need approval from the department of alcohol beverage control. what do you think of the proposal to extend closing time to 4:00 a.m.? let us know what you think. post a comment to our facebook page and tweet us using the hash tag k tvu. a lot of reaction already on facebook. big rig crashes and fender benders. >> yes, just past the fifth embarkdero exit. this is the video of the crash where a driver ended up on the freeway ramp below. fell about 40 feet to the ramp below and taken to high land hospital. the truck is still there. it's badly damaged and they
7:48 am
have to get it out of the way. it's on its side here. other vehicles were involved as well. traffic is backed up big time as you can see. it's a terrible commute. i'll let you put judgment on it. a very slow commute. look at this map it's slow from right here in san leandro up to the incident. a lot of people have heard about this backed up to oakland. you know what i mean, traffic is slow in the area. we also are looking at 580 traffic here on the approach to the richmond bridge. a lot of slow traffic on 580 and they have cleared up the problems with the back ups lingering. just good old fashioned traffic
7:49 am
on 680 south to the walnut creek interchange. the traffic at the bay bridge toll plaza is going to be backed up all the way out to the maze. coming up next, we'll talk a look at the south bay and peninsula where there's slow traffic there. let's bring steve in with today's weather. our system has moved through rapidly. a combination of sun and clouds and rain. rainbow weather is in the mix there. plenty moving through. this is the first of off and on systems. the front tomorrow is actually a storm. i don't use that term often. allie rasmus, have you heard of her? >> yes, wonderful lady. >> probably one of the nicest coworkers every. would you concur? i would concur. storm clouds rolling through. yes, you could get a passing rain and the sun will pop out combination of the three or four, if you will.
7:50 am
lower case as my rain gauge says 6.8. wake up you big sleepy goof, yes, it came through fast. i tried to get to as many rain totals as i could. speaks of healdsburg another inch of rain. west of there, two-thirds and maybe more than that by now. sleepy hollow almost an inch of rain. san francisco, .33. san jose .07. i'm sure there was more than that not far away. my good friend mike works in san jose and he texts me and says .07, i know we had more than that. yes, i know. i get it. kelseyville, 1.41. middle town .102.
7:51 am
napa and sfo picked up a third of an inch. these systems are just zipping on by. there's still some rain left. not a lot. here's the amount of lake oroville. it's levelled off. the outflow still 117,000 but watch here. the main spillway continues there. 36,000 in two hours. looks like things have tailed off rapidly. still light rain out. not a lot but some areas getting showers back over to hayward, pleasanten ton and south san francisco and pacifica over to burlingame. a break here and they're ready to rock and roll. a major wind producer for us and torrential rain in southern
7:52 am
california from friday into saturday. a break on most of the weekend and monday and tuesday, here comes heavy rain for us. ukiah to san francisco. 60s on the temps and they'll setting. saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. they should be okay. . >> thank you, steve. time is 7:52. new top honors for san francisco. three reasons san francisco was rated number one among the nation's biggest cities.
7:53 am
